Agile in Practice (PMM01)

Being agile means being quick, nimble, and flexible. It follows that the Agile project management methodology is geared for adaptability as well as efficiency. This system of working arose in the software industry in the early 2000s. When traditional linear workflows were restricting development, a new set of values and principles was proposed.

Agile offers an iterative approach that not only allows room for experimentation, but encourages it as a fundamental part of the collaborative process. Agile is more about flexibility and speed than rigorous planning and protocol. Teams are generally self-organized and work in short, focused bursts to deliver project goals. This course will show you how the Agile methodology can help your projects succeed.

By the end of this course, you’ll be able to:

•Describe the core values of the Agile methodology
•Explain the pros and cons of the Agile methodology
•Outline a workflow based on Agile principles

Why take this course?

Every organization, team member, and project is different. Project managers must be equipped with the right tools to adapt to any given environment. The Agile methodology offers the benefits of freedom and adaptability. It’s ideally suited to environments like software development and IT, but has expanded into many industries in which teams need to collaborate closely, especially when projects need continued input from stakeholders throughout the process.
